Simmons Arena

Charlottetown’s neighbourhood social and garden unveiling event planned for tonight has been moved indoors because of the weather.

The neighbourhood social will begin at 5 p.m. and take place in the Simmons Arena, instead of Queen Elizabeth Park where the new garden is located.

The Queen Elizabeth Park garden is the last of the seven, new signature gardens being unveiled in the city this summer as part of the city’s annual neighbourhood socials.

The gardens are spread throughout the city and each one is dedicated to a P.E.I. Father of Confederation.

The gardens are located outside at the West Royalty Community Centre, Hillsborough Park Community Centre, Centennial Park, J. Frank MacAulay Park, Malcolm J. Darrach Park, Highfield Park, and Queen Elizabeth Park.

Each garden includes a boulder with a plaque inscription about a PEI Father of Confederation, benches, floral and shrubbery displays and fully accessible walkways. The Queen Elizabeth Park garden is dedicated to John Hamilton Gray.

Posters for the neighbourhood socials and signature garden unveiling events have been distributed to the individual communities.

More information is available on the City’s event calendar at  www.charlottetown.ca.

Geographic location: Charlottetown, Queen Elizabeth Park, Hillsborough Park Community Highfield Park

    I don't think the Mayor should brag about wasting more money on these "signature" gardens. We needed those like a hole in the head, ---- more make work up-keep, more to vandalize, - more to waste our money on. The beautification budget is way out of line, we should be spending more on roads and other essential services like snow removal. Get the priorities straight Clifford. You are getting long in the tooth, hopefully the voters will remedy that this fall. I for one am looking for better representation and a new Mayor

    If this is like the one in Sherwood, I would urge people to save their steps. Greasy hot dogs, bingo------ ice cream and berries: NO SHOW. Save OUR money Clifford, people don't need these 'perks', and you should be ashamed to use your office in this way, to buy votes. That is not nice, Clifford.
